Describe your poster's message. The message is that life will go on and be unknown for everyone experiencing it. Describe your design choices for each- what were some of the choices you made and why? I tried switching around the text color to make it contrast against the background with various results. Tell what makes your final design the best one. What design choices make it the most successful? There isn't a annoying box around the text and it contrasts very well. Tell three things you learned about designing a successful poster. Contrast, Image, and Style.
Project 2: Brick Carving
This is the stage where i used photoshop in order to make the outlines for the Brick, the Door and the Window.
These are my window and door pieces, after being cut, as well as the sketch i made for scale.
After the brick is cut out, I'll use lights to decorate various parts of the brick.
Update (OCT 18): This week i've cut out the brick and worked on the placement of lights, along with the copper tape and battery to light them up. I'm going to use LED's, because they are easy to use, reliable, and have a nice variety of color.
Update (NOV 1): I've drilled holes in the brick and almost finished the copper tape placement. I was originally planning on having around 10 LEDs, but I toned it down to 4 because 10 would be too much copper tape and batteries, aswell as a logistic nightmare. One light on each corner will work just fine- too many chefs spoil the soup, right? I think blue LEDs will be nice, although I may try a variety of one red, one yellow, one green, and one blue if that looks better. I checked out scratch and completed the first tutorial- very basic, maybe some potential.
UPDATE (NOV 8) I've finished up the copper tape, battery, and LED's. All done!
My favorite part of this class was the laser cutting. I could just draw a brick-like design in PS, and as if it was almost magic- a few clicks later, a laser is burning away wood to make a near-perfect replica of the design. Almost magic, for sure! Another thing I liked a lot was toying around with Scratch- after all, it IS a toy! It's very basic, but it does the job.
